12 Feb, 2019Regulatory Trends in Health Economics Outcomes Research (HEOR) & Real World Evidence (RWE)


As a relatively new means of conducting research in the life sciences, RWE, or real-world evidence, is data that comes from “real world settings” such as a clinical practice. Studies driven by real world evidence, or real-world data (RWD), can utilize data from medical records or claims databases, be conducted prospectively in observational studies or adhere to a mixed, hybrid-design approach.

Stem cells have attracted a great deal of deserved attention due to their lineage-independent characteristics. In other words, they have the potential to be differentiated into a countless number of cell types. Adult stem cells, otherwise known as inducible pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), are particularly favorable as research tools because they are derived from a patient’s somatic cells such as blood, skin or muscle.
